Hey guys! well, now my car'* engine is officially dead (very low oil pressure, knocking really bad). It'* most definitely a rod bearing thing.
I decided I'm gonna pull the engine out and do the main bearings, rod bearings and oil pump myself - I figured it'd be an interesting experience even if it fails
I have the Chilton'* manual to guide me through the process.
Does anyone here has any experience with this kind of repair? anything i need to know beforehand? also, what special tools, if any, would I need? Should I let a shop take care of some parts of this job?
Also, is there a chance I'll need to replace the crankshaft/pistons/connecting rods too? the car has been driven with this knock for 100-200 miles, more or less, since it first appeared (though it wasn't so bad in the beginning).
I know I have a lot questions
but I've never done this before.
I'd really appreciate any info,
